For the second time in less than a week, we turn our attention to The Salem News for a Caps nugget (and this time we won't even mock the witch in the masthead), as the paper reports on Chris Bourque's intentions heading into training camp:
"I'll do anything I can to make the big club — even be a fighter," Bourque, who has one career fighting major in three pro seasons, joked. "I'd probably get beat up all the time, but I'd be happy if it was in the NHL."The piece is a good read about a kid who (by his own accounts, at least) has busted his tail this off-season and will look to make an already crowded Opening Night roster. That likely won't happen, of course, but my bet is that we see C-Bo in D.C. before the New Year. What he does once he gets here is likely up to him.
